Oma's Cozy Oatmeal Cookies

Introduction: Oma's Cozy Oatmeal Cookies

Have you ever just wanted to cozy up next to the crackling fire with a warm plate of delicious baked goods? Well I definitely have, that's for sure. My go-to has been and always will be Oma's oatmeal cookies. The warm flavors could practically be a description of the holiday season. When my Oma, or grandma first brought them down, all it took was one bite and I was in love. I could barely restrain myself from eating them directly from the oven! Even as a kid, I could be found in the kitchen making batch after batch of these cookies. The best part is, they are nearly impossible to mess up, which I usually do quite often. They are great for pleasing large groups of people during the holidays, and you'll undeniably be getting compliments all evening. I would hate to keep your mouth watering, so without further ado, let's get to it!


Whether you are a pro in the kitchen or are just looking for a sweet snack, you will find that these are as easy to make as they are tasty. You will only need a few household supplies and ingredients listed below.

• A hand mixer or stand mixer, with attachments. ( though I wouldn't recommend doing it by hand, you certainly could if you wish to. However, the final product won't be quite the same.)
•A medium sized mixing bowl
•A large mixing bowl
•2 cookie sheet pans
•A whisk
• cookie scoop (optional)

•Three sticks margarine (total of 1 1/2 cups)*
•Three large eggs
•Four and 1/8 cup light brown sugar
•Three teaspoons of vanilla extract
•Four tablespoons baking powder
•Two tablespoons baking soda
•Four cups of flour, leveled*
•Three cups quick oats
•Two cups coconut-unsweetened or sweetened, based on your preference (both work very well in the cookie).
•Two cups coarsely chopped walnuts
•Two cups chocolate chips or chunks

*you can also substitute out about half of the margarine for an equal amount of butter

*remember to add about a half cup of flour if you live in high altitude

Step 1: Wet Ingredients

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large mixing bowl, Cream together brown sugar and margarine, adding the eggs and vanilla about half way through.

Step 2: Dry Ingredients

In a separate medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients to the wet. Next, add in oats, walnuts, coconut, and chocolate chips to the mixture, until combined.

Step 3: Bake!

Roll out heaping tablespoons of dough and place on a baking sheet. Slide them into the oven, cooking for about 11-13 minutes, until nearly golden around the edges. Be sure not to over bake, as they will continue to cook as they stand. Allow to cool on a wire rack for at least 5 minutes as you drool over them🤤.Enjoy! :)
